AARON GANDIA: DRUMS AND PERCUSSION I have a bachelor's degree in music with concentration on orchestration and arrangement. In college I played in the college Jazz Band for 4 years. I subsequently earned a degree at Full Sail in Recording Technology the continued on with an internship at Phat Planet Studios here in Orlando right after I graduated. I quickly worked my way up to an engineering position there. Then after 3 years I became the Chief Enginee . I’ve been recording, producing and mixing artist and albums there for 13 years now. I am also a Grammy Nominated engineer, and worked on a couple Dove award winning albums also.
My musical background ranges from rock and the 90’s grunge that I grew up in, to ska and reggae which was common in Puerto Rico. Then in college I was deep into Jazz and Latin jazz, as well as classical musical because the department was more European classical based. When I moved to Orlando I started working with a Pop music producer that taught me a lot about writing and arranging for mainstream music.
